CCII, which is the umbrella body for all indigenes of the ancient city both at home and in the Diaspora in its reaction, said that many developmental projects were executed during the two-year reign of the Ali-Iwo born monarch.

CCII made this declaration in a statement issued by its President-General, Barrister Sulaimon Ajeniyi Ajewole.

He sympathized with the people of Ali-Iwo compound and all indigenes of the ancient city over the passage of the monarch.

“We in CCII received the news of the passage of the 42nd Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Mahood Olalekan Balogun Ali Okunmade 11 with shock.
